The Black Forest Trail is a 42-mile hiking trail built by the DCNR Bureau of Forestry. It utilizes old railroad grades, logging trails, and foot trails to traverse some of the most spectacular terrain in Pennsylvania. Portions of this trail follow foot paths originally constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. A trail map and guide is available from the district office.

The Pine Creek Rail Trail was developed by the DCNR Bureau of Forestry on the abandoned railroad grade that parallels Pine Creek. The trail will extend 62 miles from Jersey Shore in the Tiadaghton State Forest north to Wellsboro Junction in the Tioga State Forest. The trail is used primarily for bicycling, cross country skiing, and walking.
